Zlatan Ibrahimovic, he scores when he wants...and he does what he wants, when he wants. Because he's Zlatan. 

Ibrahimovic scored a hat-trick on Sunday to spark PSG's 4-2 victory. Per usual with the Swedish sensation and lightning rod, it wasn't without its odd highlights. 

He opened his Sunday account with a confidently taken penalty right down the middle.

For his second, he capitalised on a free-kick from Yohan Cabaye. Before his clinching hat-trick, he found the time to take a nice little break. It ain't easy being Ibra. 

His third wasn't without standard Ibrahimovic bravado, either. He again decided to go straight down the middle on his second attempt from the penalty spot. This time, however, he opted for the penalka route. The attempt was saved, but he pounced on the rebound to finish the hat-trick. 

After the match, Ibrahimovic proved to be a man of the people. While relishing his exploits in the aftermath, he took the time out to take a selfie with a young ball-boy.
